“Even after so many defeats, over so many decades, neither has your [Congress party’s] arrogance gone nor has your ecosystem let you shed your arrogance,” said PM Modi.

The Prime Minister further said that if Opposition parties “were connected to the ground”, they would have seen how the government has improved the lives of people with its schemes on housing, water connections and gas cylinders.

“Many of you [Congress MPs] are people whose needle is stuck in 2014. They cannot get out of it. You have paid for it. The way you have bound yourself in a mental state, the people of the country have understood you,” PM Modi said during his address to the Lok Sabha.

He further said that “some parties” are using the forum of the lower house to “further their party’s agenda”.

“It is not about winning or losing elections, it is about people’s intentions,” PM Modi said, adding that “criticism is an ornament of a lively democracy, but blind opposition is disrespectful to democracy”.
